Love it or Hate it, AI is making an impact

Apr 25, 2023 5:06 pm


Hello ,

In today's world, there is no escaping the impact of artificial intelligence (AI). Whether we love it or hate it, AI is changing the way we live and work. But amidst all the technological advancements, there is one thing that will always remain timeless - storytelling.

That's why we are excited to introduce our new storytelling YouTube channel. We believe that storytelling is a powerful tool that can bring people together, inspire change, and create a lasting impact. Our channel will focus on telling real stories, starting with the life of Toby Younis, a man who has lived an extraordinary life and has many tales to share.

We hope to showcase the power of storytelling and demonstrate that even in a world dominated by technology, the human element will always be essential.

We'll share the finer details about this channel and our first storytelling video podcast episode in next week's newsletter. Don't miss it!

Unleashing the Power of Storytelling: Why AI and Personal Experience Stories are a Winning Combination

by Shelley Carney

Interviewing, writing, and telling the story of a loved one before they pass away or lose the ability to recall their memorable moments is an incredibly powerful and emotional experience. It's a way to honor their life and preserve their legacy, and it can be a healing experience for both the storyteller and the audience.

Sharing the story of a parent, spouse, or friend can be a way to keep their memory alive and ensure that their life isn't forgotten. It's an opportunity to capture their personality, their passions, and their achievements, and to share them with future generations. By telling their story, we can honor their life and the impact they had on the world around them.

As time passes, memories can fade and become distorted, making it difficult to accurately remember a loved one's life. By telling their story before it's too late, we can ensure that their legacy is preserved in a way that's true to who they were.

Last year for my mom’s 80th birthday, I planned to interview her and her sister to gather the stories of their lives. Then my mom had a stroke less than a month before her birthday. Now it is too difficult for her to remember or share her stories.

My husband has lost the ability to speak clearly enough to be understood due to cancer and surgery. It has become too difficult for him to share his stories as well.

These losses have motivated me to encourage my business partner to tell his stories now before it is too late.

Perhaps I can encourage you to tell your stories or the stories of your ancestors, too.

Unboxing the Mighty Mill Gold Ore Crusher

The Mighty Mill Gold Ore Crusher is a portable and lightweight mining crusher designed to crush and grind various types of raw ore quickly and easily. Each mill is handmade and produced on a very limited basis. We were among the fortunate few to have ordered one in the March 2023 batch. It enables us to take the next step in our garage prospecting endeavor since we can now crush gold-bearing ores to run through our process.

We plan to produce three additional videos on the Mighty Mill: Assembly, Set-up, and First Run. We'll release them in that order over the next three weeks.

How Much Gold? Prospecting Arroyo San Pedro Near Bosquecito, New Mexico

On the return trip from our visit to Trinity Site, we pulled off NM 380 above the Rio Grande near San Antonio (NM) and took a prospecting sample from the San Pedro Arroyo. On the map, the arroyo is a convergence of several other arroyos coming down from the mountains in this part of New Mexico. We'll run it through our process to see if we can produce any gold.
